Covid Test Kits: As schools and families adjust to an increase in positive cases, OHA, ODE and DDSD remain committed to school safety. OHA in collaboration with ODE is sending iHealth antigen self-tests to all schools in Oregon to be sent home with students. These tests represent one strategy to increase access to testing resources in our school communities.Students and their families are encouraged to use these tests if they develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or who have had a known exposure to COVID-19. These will be sent home with students.

Register now for the Summer Learning Program: Join us for fun, interactive activities this summer with David Douglas School District’s free in-person Summer Learning Program! The Summer Learning Program provides participants entering grades six through eighth grade with the opportunity to apply classroom learning in an informal, problem-solving context. Students will engage in hands-on, project-based learning and outdoor recreation.

Projects include designing a moving sculpture, creating a prototype of a shoe, and building programmable robots. This 16-day session will help students prepare for the next school year and provide continued academic learning through the summer.

The program runs Mondays through Thursdays between July 11 – August 4 and is for students who are beginning 6th, 7th and 8th grade this fall. Breakfast, lunch, and bus transportation are included. Visit the Floyd Light Summer Learning Program webpage for more details, online registration, and translated materials.
